Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Two words describe winter in our neck of the woods... cold, dark, and snowy. Just the way we like it! At 7.2% ABV, Powder Hound Winter Ale gives just the right amount of warmth, balanced by its rich taste and generous dose of Hallertau, Palisade, and Amarillo hops. After a cold day of getting it done or just relaxing, the avalanche of flavor will have you saying these four words - "I'll have another Powder Hound"!

12oz bottle.

Poured a medium to deeper orangish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, roast, and chocolate. Tastes of toffee, roasted and toasted malts, and I was getting a lighter fruitiness.

Notes from and tasted on 02/01/08.

3.6/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

The pour was a hazy medium orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that diminished into a puddle of residue which in turn created streaking sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a mild bread malt, pine hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, coriander, a bit of clove and just a touch of alcohol.

The taste was malty and mildly sweet with notes of caramel and toffee early on and then progressed into a nice bitter hoppy flavor that had notes of some dark fruit and spices with a hint of alcohol at the end. The flavor lingered for a nice long time and left a nice spicy malty flavor on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and a tad watery in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a nice bold Winter Ale that had just the right amount of spices and a great hoppy finish.

3.6/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look - clear, light amber in color. Half to one finger's worth of foam that dissipates quickly. Moderate carbonation.

Smell - Hoppy-smelling, there's also a pepperiness or spiciness to it that I can't quite pin down. Very intriguing smell. Hopefully the taste is just as captivating.

Taste - Fairly high level of bitterness from the hops. The spice smell lives on in the taste as well, but I still can't quite define it. I want to say maybe Agave, but I don't think that can be right. Bitterness lingers on in the aftertaste, but only as a guest for the night, as it doesn't linger too long. Texture is fairly well-balanced, but is more on the creamier side.

Drinkability - might be a little too bitter for me to enjoy on many occasions, but I'd keep coming back just for the complexity of it. Nice brew.

3.6/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Deep reddish amber body topped by a thin, ecru head. The head gradually fades to just a loose grouping of larger bubbles ringed in tight foam. The aroma is almost all caramel malt notes, but there's just a hint of woody herbalness. Light caramel flavors are supported by a slight alcohol note, then wrapped up with some bitterness. Slight, very slight medicinal/metallic note on the finish that's just a bit astringent. Mouthfeel is solid, but a bit over-carbonated. Drinakbilty is ok. A solid beer, but not exceptional.

3.63/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- A moderate pour left a 2-finger, pillowy, khaki head with what looked like a spot of yeast left behind. The head sustains at about 1/2-finger and leaves fluffy rings on the glass. The body was a clean amber that was just slightly hazed and had loads of carbonation.

S- It was pretty sweetish at first. I got caramel malts, citrus and earthy hops. There was an orange zest quality that almost seemed juicy. Later on I picked up some husky grains, maybe brought on by some warmth.

T- Really well balanced. There was slightly burnt caramel, herbal and citrus hops. The hopping clean and dry the finish. There was some toasted and cereal-like grains in the middle-to-end.

M- Sips are through a fairly frothy head. It's fairly full-bodied. There was a pleasant grainy quality. It had a very dry finish.

D- It came across as an amber that's had everything ratcheted up a notch. Very flavorful. As a winter seasonal, it's a nice seitch from some of the overly-spiced, alcohol bombs out there. At first I thought this would be some kind of a "sessionable" seasonal. However, it ended up a little too bold for a bunch in any one sitting. Not really a sipper, but definitely not a chugger.

3.63/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance
Poured a clear, deep rusty amber. A one finger light tan head formed on the pour. This finely carbonated ale was able to produce a fine yet thick collar of lacings.

Aroma
Fruity and toasted bready malts. Red cherry skin, perhaps a touch of red grape also present. Some earthy and leafy (as in autumn) hops also there.

Taste
Dry malts, predominant flavours of toast and biscuit. A lesser, hazelnut flavour also present, along with intersting fruity notes, some maraschino cherry and red grape. The mild, earthy and leafy hops finished this one out.

Mouthfeel
A simple, refreshing, well made beer. Nicely balanced, refreshing, with a dry finish. Lacks real depth or complexity.

Drinkability
A very drinkable brew, definately sessionable. Would be a great brew to drink with friends or family that would normally stick to BMC or Molbatts, as long as they have to courage to try something new. May look for this one again if such a situation arises.

A clear mahogany color with a big fluffy light tan head with good lace. The aroma is a light nutty sweetness with some malt, but very mild. It has a mellow woody-nut flavor, some vanilla with a full body feel but sort of flat at the same time. I detect a little smokiness and there is a slight hop bitterness at the back of this. Drinkable enough and definitely worth a try.

3.64/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Almost clear gold/amber color with a modest white head that retreats to just a skin but does manage a bit of lacing.

The aroma is brazil nuts, toffee, caramel and cardboard with a grassy note,a bit odd but not terrible.

he taste is caramel malt, crackers, pine nuts, with a bit of citrus hops. The finish is fairly dry with a lingering grassy, somewhat spicy note.

Medium bodied, smooth and very drinkable.

Overall not a bad brew, especially for a cold fall or winter day.

12oz bottle to Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

A: Chill-hazed gold with white head and lace.

S: Grapefruit and a robust malt backbone, caramel and nutty aromas, slightly toasted, orange and orange peel, hint of spice, bready, toffee.

T: Toasted grain and bread, with caramel and toffee as the Amber-side of this beer takes over. There is a slight hop bite with citrus and orange and grapefruit peel. Hint of something like allspice as well, but I could be wrong...

MF: Medium bodied, no real alcohol presence, there is a bit of spice/hop bite on the finish.

O: Decent overall, a pleasant amber ale with a nice underlying hop presence.

Opened cold 12 oz bottle, poured into Nonic glass.

Poured a nice head of 1", died down to a hazy layer of bubbles atop a tea brown brew. Clear, mild bubbles in brew.

Smell is mild malty. Taste is clean. Very subtle, I taste some dark fruitiness - cherry on the back? Brew is has some sweetness with a nice pleasant finish. I actually expected more from this one, but it really didn't deliver much past average. It is a decent beer, maybe its just not cold enough here in Arizona to get the full effect. But all being said, it is a decent beer.

The powder hound is a beautiful beer. Poured a clear perfect amber with slighly off white head that is at least a half finger and is lacing really well. The smell is a good heavy carmal malt with tinges of spice. The initial taste was an alcohol explosion. The second taste allowed for the malt and carmel to begin to blossum. The mouthfeel is medium body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer....the alcohol content is not masked as well as I would like.

A: Clear amber body and a billowy fluffy coffee-colored head with great lacing on the glass and about 3mm on top throughout drinking.
S: Smells like a dark lager, pretty sweet overall. Malty and some honey.
T: Sweet malts, light and dark, up front. Diacetyl and some alcohol and banana, with the banana and some smokiness finishing off the taste.
M: Smooth. Maybe a bit too sweet overall but not bad.
D: A great beer to have in winter months. Probably could have a couple but the sweetness may get to be too much after this.

A: Deep brown with a decent off-white head thta has OK retention. Leaves bits of lace.

S: Mostly malty, with caramel, toffee and a touch of pine.

T: Not very exciting, but still good. A very balanced beer with a toasted maltiness up front and mild citrus and pine bitterness in back.

M: Medium body has the right amount of fizz.

D: One of the weaker winter seasonals I've had. A decent beer nonetheless that holds it's own away from other winter offerings.

The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee with some caramel and grassy hops mixed in. The flavor is toffee and bready malt. There is a little bit of hop bitterness and a tad bit of flavor from the grassy hops, but this beer is all about the malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

When I opened the beer I was expecting a winter warmer. It was a surprise to see a lighter colored amber ale, but the beer was still enjoyable.

A - This one is a medium brown hue that shows some garnet highlights under the big fluffy tan head. Big sheets of lace coat the glass, and head retention is awesome. Sitting on my desk in the wintry snow sunlight, this looks translucent and luminescent. Good lookin' brew!

S - Nutty brown ale notes, wet firewood, and a hint of brown sugar. Unsalted almonds, chestnuts, and walnuts. Some maple syrup is there, nut only just.

T - Earthy, nutty, and rich. This is really nutty, and it takes he whole "winter spice" aspect of the style to a different place. Unlike other winter brews, this one avoids cinnamon ad nutmeg in favor of chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

M - Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, and quite dry. The dusty dry finish works well with the nutty complexity.

D - Pretty damn good stuff. It won't wow you or knock your socks off, but it is a really solidly built brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a pleasant light copper amber hue with a very fine, indeed powdery, head of off-white. Some patchy lace is left. Body is quite fine and fluid, but with a nice slickness to it. Very fine carbonation. Indeed, "fine" is coming up a lot in describing the appearance; it is a fine looking beer.

Nose is muted, with a touch of crisp, generic American hop aroma that smells as though it's been left a little long. Some clean, lemony dish detergent aromas, with a touch of chlorine and turned earth. Nice, but not that exciting.

Taste is pleasantly malty, with a solid backbone of faintly toasted malts, leading to a clean but pronounced American hop bitterness on the back of the palate. Clear feel lets the crisp hop characters shine, lending a freshness to the mix that a heavier body would mask.

Overall, a pretty nice hoppy American amber ale. It's smooth, and the malt is perhaps a little less pronounced than it could be, but it's a good, if somewhat middle-of-the-road example of the style.

huge foamy head of tiny tan bubbles. Beer is clear and dark reddish brown, inbetween a brown ale and an amber.

Smell is very nice, malty and slightly sweet, what hops i can sense are sharp and orangey/citrusy.

Taste is somewhat sweet as the smell suggested, not too hoppy, quite mellow infact. Pleasing, althoug quite mellow. Aftertaste is very fine too, a mellow toasty sweetness.

Mouthfeel is also nice, there is a lot of thickness and body here to enjoy.

It's a great winter ale. Would be refreshing, especially with a hearty winter meal.

Ruby color, smallish head. Aroma: plum, cherries, some dark fruits. Medium body, lingering pleasant finish, slightly sweet, and very mellow. Normally, I like my winter ales to be on the spicier side, richer and toasted, and stronger. We'll have to wait 'til Anchor Our Special comes in...not a bad beer here, though.

Pours a clear amber color with a thick layer of fine-bubbled beige foam. Pretty good retention and some decent lacing on the glass.

Smells like a caramel covered apple, the sweet bready and slightly toasted malts are complimented by a touch of yeasty fruitiness and just a hint of grassy hops.

Taste is pretty good with a wide variety of maltiness on the palate...grainy, toasty, nutty and even a bit of cocoa. Decent hop bitterness lingers a bit on the back of the tongue. A bit light bodied and flavored for the 'Winter Ale' designation on the label, especially from a snowy, cold northern state. It is a pretty easy drinker and tastes great for an amber ale, which is what I am rating it as. I would drink it again and me thinks it would be even better fresh off the tap.

Appearance:

Crystal clear amber/orange with a two finger off white head. An abundance amount of carbonation rises up to the top of the glass

Smell:

Caramel maltiness with a good dose of spicy hops in the mix

Taste:

A caramel malty sweetness is noticeable initially with a follow up of a combination of spicy and citrus hops

Mouthfeel:

This beer gives off a medium to heavy feeling and leaves a slight alcohol burn on the tongue. The carbonation level hits the spot just right

Overall:

I got more of an American Strong ale impression from this beer rather than a amber/red due to the bitterness and alcohol twinge. I did enjoy the balance it provided and would purchase again

Poured from a longneck into a shaker pint. A moderate pour produces about an inch of billowy head, which reduces quickly but settles into a sticky lace. The beer is a fairly pale but hazy golden color. It's quite attractive, but it does not look like an amber/red, as this site characterizes it.

Subdued piney and citrus hops on the nose, with perhaps a little funk, and some biscuity malt in the aroma-flavor. I also detect undertones of caramel, and a little bit of non-specific fruitiness that, with the hop bitterness, is somewhat reminiscent of mild ruby grapefruit or cranberry but without the pucker. Warming alcohol as the beer progresses.

This beer strikes me as more of a pale ale than a red (perhaps an "Imperial" pale?). It's very drinkable and quite good, and makes a good session brew if you don't mind a little buzz...

Updated thoughts....a nice red ale or perhaps a blend of a red and a brown ale...not a big-ass winter warmer by any means but decent enough....I think the nose on this is very good..toasted caramel nouget...there is a bit of a sour aftertaste but overall this has a nice toasty flavor....worth trying...
